Easter is rushing in early this year. This holiday holds a high and jubilant meaning for us, but it also signals the end of winter and the beginning of SPRING! Spring – when all things are new, all possibilities are renewed, and the great orb in the sky shines brightly. Ah, the smell of the air, the dew in the mornings, the buds on the trees, the birds chattering, the texture of fresh earth as you turn it over in your garden. God surely uses this season to remind us of His presence everywhere we turn. Probably the only thing in nature that is more spiritual to me than the joy of Spring is watching the ocean. But, since I am land-locked in the Midwest, I don’t get to see the great ocean very often. But I love spring – have I mentioned that yet?
Easter dinners have frequently been eaten in a restaurant but there have been times when I have prepared the meal at home. This is a great opportunity to bring out the spring accessories and refresh your household just as God’s nature is renewed.
One of the most enjoyable phases of planning for Easter dinner (or any entertainment, for that matter) is deciding upon the menu. I have collected cookbooks for many years, but with the prolific foodie talent on the internet, that is hardly necessary any longer.
With that in mind, I have a thought. Fantasy football is certainly a successful and entertaining activity for many, so we are going to do some Fantasy menu planning.
I will search food blogs and create three Easter menus. The menus will have links back to the blog where the original post can be found. I don’t know if I will make all the recipes I use for these menus, but I plan to have a LOT of fun creating the possibilities. Who knows, perhaps one of them will end up as the final cut for our own Easter Dinner here at home.
